Just to add that Mozilla Firefox V3.0 is giving some people a real headache when viewing certain websites/forums. If you are a regular user of FF then stick with 2.0 version for I'd say until end of January, hopefully Mozilla will have ironed out the bugs and glitches by then

I have now downloaded Firefox V3.0.6 & so far it seems OK with this forum.( far better than Google Chrome) .
One thing I have noticed in the main Reply box, that the ABC spell checker Icon has gone for walk.

Interesting. Max has made a comment about Guests being able to see some of our members work so I thought that by logging out, it would present me as a guest see the front page - well it did under IE but not under Firefox - I get logged out & immediately logs me back in again. I will have to use IE to try it agaim.

Have you given Slimbrowser a whirl Sol. It is based on IE but with all the things I think IE should have.

Martin, while the Spell checker underlines errors, it does not give a suggested correction, at least with the ABC under IE/Slimbrowser, it gives at least some suggestions.

I have been trying Thunderbird but I see it does not seem to allow me to import my address book from Windows Mail, only Outlook and Outlook Express. I am trying the latest version of Thunderbird.

Bob, I had great fun importing the address book even from Outlook Express as I had several groups of all different e-addresses & the importing combined them all into one large group - been spending odd times now splitting them back up .

Martin, thanks for the spell checking tip.

Spent half an hour on this and managed to get the contacts in but not the mail. Never mind, there's nothing wrong with Windows Mail.

I've downloaded and am trying out a trial version of IE8.  Lots of nice new functions that speed things up.  For example, when you highlight text an icon appears next to it.  When you click on it a new tab opens and displays search results from your preferred search engine. 

If you don't like installing software that's still under development then I wouldn't recommend it just yet, but its done me no harm and I certainly don't want to go back to IE7 now.  Final release sometime this year I think.

I currently use IE7, i just had a look at IE8 and am currently dowloading it. It will only take around two minutes. Firefox is always annoying for me and websites dont look as good. But then again everyone likes diffrent styles.

I have just installed it and it is amazing, here is some of the awesome features i find helpfull.



Feature #1:

Some websites are designed for old computers and browsers. If a picture or text is out of place you can click this to fix the page.

Feature #2:

Suggested sites reads through your browsing history and comes up with a list of sites you wont know which will be related to some recent things you have visited.

The add page button adds icons to the right which is one click to view that page. All you need to do to set it up is to go to a page you want tabbed and click the button.



This is a perview of all tabs open, handy if you have alot or cant rember what tab has what page.

The new IE8 is faster then IE7 and is also more secure. It was well worth the upgrade.

I downloaded IE8 and installed it exactly as it said, the computer shut down and restarted to finish the installation and that went ok. I then clicked on the shortcut, IE loaded and then shut itself down with some blurb about it was a risk to my system. Now I can't find out how to get rid of it as there doesn't seem to be an uninstall program for it. Great. Fortunately it hasn't affected my Slimbrowser.

Bob, I downloaded IE8, followed the instructions & all is OK. I have 4 browsers now loaded, IE, Fire fox, Slimbrowser & Google Chrome & rate Chrome last. I use XP & looked under Settings/Control Panel/ADd or Remove Programs & found Windows IE8 OK to be able to delete if needed.
It does seem that why Application "A" works OK for some, it stuffs up for others - another mystery of the Computer.

While IE8 is OK, I do miss the auto spellchecker in Quick reply which Fire fox has so I may go back to it.

Interesting, under IE8, this browser recognisesd both non-www & www yourmodelrailway as the same & logs me in automatically under both methods. I had the non-www loaded, a new tab & loaded www & it took me as a member still so it s a browser situation. Now to try both Slimbrowser & Google Chrome.
